We dined at Bricin last week while in Killarney and had an absolutely delicious meal. I couldn't resist the lamb boxty and it was well worth it. The setting was also lovely: fun, homey, happy. And the staff are lovely people, all of them!

Set above Bricín Shop, Bricín Restaurant and Boxty House is a well known name on the lips of many people. Opened in November 1991, its popularity is down to the fine food produced by Owner/Chef Paddy McGuire and by the warmth of welcome and hospitality shown front of house by Owner Johnny McGuire. Between them they have an exceptional product that has been 21 years plus in the making.
